Planet Bluegrass in LyonsAs we gather with friends and family this week, all of us on Planet Bluegrass have never felt more thankful. A historic 500-year flood may have torn through our community 11 weeks ago. But that devastating event has only brought us closer together -- making us feel deeply alive and passionately united.

On this Thanksgiving eve we've never felt so optimistic about our future, so committed to our mission of musical inspiration, and so thankful for the community of Festivarian Nation that continues to reach out with love and support.

-- RockyGrass Festival --
RockyGrass (photo: Benko Photographics)Within days of the flood, musicians began calling us wanting to help. For many artists Planet Bluegrass has held a powerful place in their life and career. So with their help, and as a sign of our unwavering confidence in ours and Lyons' recovery, we're proud to announce the preliminary lineup for the 42nd RockyGrass (July 25-27, 2014), perhaps our strongest ever:

• Ricky Skaggs & Bruce Hornsby with Kentucky Thunder • Sam Bush Bluegrass Band • Hot Rize • Béla & Abby • Jerry Douglas & Friends • Peter Rowan • Steep Canyon Rangers • Noam Pikelny & Friends • John Jorgenson Bluegrass Band • Della Mae • Balsam Range • Julian Lage & Chris Eldridge • Matt Flinner Trio • The Railsplitters • many more to be announced...

RockyGrass onsite campground (photo: Benko Photographics)3-day passes, single-day tickets, and camping go onsale next Thursday, December 5 at 9am MST. (Yes, we did say "single-day tickets." To give single-day Festivarians a better opportunity to purchase their tickets, we're making single-day tickets available in early December, prior to 3-day passes selling-out.)

In the meantime, don't forget to remind your campmates: the online lottery for RockyGrass onsite camping is open now thru Sunday, December 1. Spaces in our other RockyGrass campgrounds, including Meadow Park, will go onsale next Thursday.

Despite our first lingering snow, work continues here in Lyons on Planet Bluegrass 2.0. Most visibly, a team of backhoes has been busy re-grading the main seating area to create clearer stage views for everyone in our new "Planet Bluegrass bowl." Meanwhile, inside the "embassy" we're digging Skaggs & Hornsby's live CD (watch this) and Noam's inventive banjo take on Kenny Baker.

-- Other News --
We invite you to become more involved with our festivals (and earn your free festival pass) as a Festivarian volunteer. Telluride Bluegrass tickets don't go onsale until December 6, but we began accepting Telluride volunteer applications yesterday, November 26. We'll open the volunteer applications for RockyGrass and Folks Fest on January 21.

We hope to make some more 2014 lineup announcements in the next few weeks. All we can say right now is that the Telluride Bluegrass stage is going to be mighty crowded this year.

As one last reminder to scribble on your calendar, all our 2014 tickets will be going onsale next week on the following dates:

Folks Festival & The Song School: tickets onsale Wednesday, Dec. 4
RockyGrass: tickets onsale Thursday, Dec. 5
Telluride Bluegrass: tickets onsale Friday, Dec. 6

We'll be launching our new online store at shop.bluegrass.com early next week. You may want to stop by and create a new login for yourself prior to our tickets going onsale.

We sincerely appreciate all the support you have given to our beloved hometown of Lyons. We encourage you to help our town, our neighbors, and our local businesses via the many resources at www.LyonsFightsBack.org. We can't wait to welcome you back to Lyons in July and thank you in-person. It's going to be a powerful summer of music.

With love,
The Folks on Planet Bluegrass
